Welcome to Kiki's shop!
Everything is lovingly handmade in Evanston, IL...
... hand knit in small batches and exclusive colors with only the finest natural fibers such as merino wool, alpaca and silk... here's why:
Wool is biodegradable and unlike synthetic fibers, will not release micro plastics in the water supply.
Wool is naturally water-repellant and allows your skin to breathe without holding onto moisture and odor-causing bacteria.
Animal fibres such as alpaca and merino wool are incredibly soft and warm without the itchiness!
In short, you pay more for natural fibers (raising the animals and harvesting their wool is built into the cost of the yarn), but as my Italian father always says "when you pay more, you pay less."
